Ring buffer

group RINGBUFF

Generic ring buffer manager.

Defines

BUF_PREF(x)

Buffer function/typedef prefix string.

It is used to change function names in zero time to easily re-use same library between applications. Use #define BUF_PREF(x) my_prefix_ ## x to change all function names to (for example) my_prefix_buff_init

Note

Modification of this macro must be done in header and source file aswell

Functions

uint8_t ringbuff_init(ringbuff_t *buff, void *buffdata, size_t size)

Initialize buffer handle to default values with size and buffer data array.

Return

1 on success, 0 otherwise

Parameters
  • [in] buff: Buffer handle

  • [in] buffdata: Pointer to memory to use as buffer data

  • [in] size: Size of buffdata in units of bytes Maximum number of bytes buffer can hold is size - 1

void ringbuff_free(ringbuff_t *buff)

Free buffer memory.

Note

Since implementation does not use dynamic allocation, it just sets buffer handle to NULL

Parameters
  • [in] buff: Buffer handle

void ringbuff_reset(ringbuff_t *buff)

Resets buffer to default values. Buffer size is not modified.

Parameters
  • [in] buff: Buffer handle

size_t ringbuff_write(ringbuff_t *buff, const void *data, size_t btw)

Write data to buffer Copies data from data array to buffer and marks buffer as full for maximum count number of bytes.

Return

Number of bytes written to buffer. When returned value is less than btw, there was no enough memory available to copy full data array

Parameters
  • [in] buff: Buffer handle

  • [in] data: Pointer to data to write into buffer

  • [in] btw: Number of bytes to write

size_t ringbuff_read(ringbuff_t *buff, void *data, size_t btr)

Read data from buffer Copies data from buffer to data array and marks buffer as free for maximum btr number of bytes.

Return

Number of bytes read and copied to data array

Parameters
  • [in] buff: Buffer handle

  • [out] data: Pointer to output memory to copy buffer data to

  • [in] btr: Number of bytes to read

size_t ringbuff_peek(ringbuff_t *buff, size_t skip_count, void *data, size_t btp)

Read from buffer without changing read pointer (peek only)

Return

Number of bytes peeked and written to output array

Parameters
  • [in] buff: Buffer handle

  • [in] skip_count: Number of bytes to skip before reading data

  • [out] data: Pointer to output memory to copy buffer data to

  • [in] btp: Number of bytes to peek

size_t ringbuff_get_free(ringbuff_t *buff)

Get number of bytes in buffer available to write.

Return

Number of free bytes in memory

Parameters
  • [in] buff: Buffer handle

size_t ringbuff_get_full(ringbuff_t *buff)

Get number of bytes in buffer available to read.

Return

Number of bytes ready to be read

Parameters
  • [in] buff: Buffer handle

void *ringbuff_get_linear_block_read_address(ringbuff_t *buff)

Get linear address for buffer for fast read.

Return

Linear buffer start address

Parameters
  • [in] buff: Buffer handle

size_t ringbuff_get_linear_block_read_length(ringbuff_t *buff)

Get length of linear block address before it overflows for read operation.

Return

Linear buffer size in units of bytes for read operation

Parameters
  • [in] buff: Buffer handle

size_t ringbuff_skip(ringbuff_t *buff, size_t len)

Skip (ignore; advance read pointer) buffer data Marks data as read in the buffer and increases free memory for up to len bytes.

Note

Useful at the end of streaming transfer such as DMA

Return

Number of bytes skipped

Parameters
  • [in] buff: Buffer handle

  • [in] len: Number of bytes to skip and mark as read

void *ringbuff_get_linear_block_write_address(ringbuff_t *buff)

Get linear address for buffer for fast read.

Return

Linear buffer start address

Parameters
  • [in] buff: Buffer handle

size_t ringbuff_get_linear_block_write_length(ringbuff_t *buff)

Get length of linear block address before it overflows for write operation.

Return

Linear buffer size in units of bytes for write operation

Parameters
  • [in] buff: Buffer handle

size_t ringbuff_advance(ringbuff_t *buff, size_t len)

Advance write pointer in the buffer. Similar to skip function but modifies write pointer instead of read.

Note

Useful when hardware is writing to buffer and application needs to increase number of bytes written to buffer by hardware

Return

Number of bytes advanced for write operation

Parameters
  • [in] buff: Buffer handle

  • [in] len: Number of bytes to advance

struct ringbuff_t
#include <ringbuff.h>

Buffer structure.

Public Members

uint8_t *buff

Pointer to buffer data. Buffer is considered initialized when buff != NULL and size > 0

size_t size

Size of buffer data. Size of actual buffer is 1 byte less than value holds

size_t r

Next read pointer. Buffer is considered empty when r == w and full when w == r - 1

size_t w

Next write pointer. Buffer is considered empty when r == w and full when w == r - 1
